Pattern Spotlight: R is for Romper

Have you seen the adorable versions of the Sewing for Boys patterns that are popping up all around the Interwebs? We have, and we’re smitten! We wanted to take a moment to spotlight some of these patterns so you won’t miss out on all the cuteness!

“R is for Romper” is a pattern written for babies and toddlers; this raw-edged romper is an intermediate level pattern and it includes smooth seams for baby’s sensitive skin. The book includes a snapped bottom so you can change diapers with ease, which is a big benefit for the moms out there who will dress their kiddos in this adorable outfit!

The pattern details:

  • Sizes: 0-6 months, 6-12 months, 12-18 months
  • Fabric requirements: 1/2 yard to 2/3 yard
  • Recommended fabrics: medium-weight knits with at least 30% stretch such as cotton jersey, bamboo rayon, rib cotton knit or French terry.
  • To sew this pattern you will also need a ball point needle, lightweight fusible or knit interfacing, and 8 sets of poly-resin snaps.

Let’s take a look at the gorgeous R is for Rompers out in the wild!
